An Army officer from northern Indiana died in Iraq when the military says a bomb exploded nearby during combat operations.
Capt. Timothy McGovern was a 28 year old graduate of Twin Lakes High School in Monticello and Purdue University. The military says he and a soldier from Texas were killed Wednesday by the bombing in Mosul.
Relatives say McGovern was a month away from finishing his second tour of duty in Iraq.
McGovern's uncle, Mike Wright, says he gave his life to his country and was doing the work he wanted to do.
McGovern is the 93rd member of the military from Indiana to have died after being sent to the Mideast for the war in Iraq.
